Sweden has advanced in the World Cup knockout round. They defeated Switzerland, 1-0, on Tuesday at Saint Petersburg Stadium in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Sweden, with their win, advanced to their first World Cup quarter-final since 1994. They will face the winner of the Colombia and England game.
The winner of the England and Colombia game, which starts at 2 pm today on Fox Sports 1, will face off against Sweden on Saturday.
Switzerland has never won a World Cup knockout match. They have been eliminated in all seven matches.
This includes their four round of 16 games in 1994, 2006, 2014, and 2018.
With the win, Sweden has won back-to-back World Cup matches for the first-time since 1958. That year, they won their quarter-final and semi-final before advancing to the final as the host nation.
Emil Forsberg scores the game-winning goal in the 66th minute. Forsberg broke the deadlock in the match when he scored off of a deflection from teammate Ola Toivonen.
